 Find out  what happens at the Quaint Quirky and Christmas Cabaret at the Sterndale Bennett Theatre, Friday and Saturday, Nov. 25 and 26.


“We always do a Christmas show, but we wanted to go bigger for our tenth anniversary,” said Deonie Hudson, Assistant Director of the  variety show, which will feature 20 performances directed by Andrés Moreno.


“It’s a lot of fun. Get into the Christmas spirit and celebrate the season with Theatre Outré,” Hudson said, noting a variety of acts are linked through an ongoing story— the conflict between director Andrés Moreno’s muppet Doni and Jay Whitehead’s beloved Mama Didi E’dada.


“ It’s about showcasing the community that Theatre Outré has build up over the past 10 years,” said Moreno, who first got involved with Theatre Outré two years ago.


“ It’s definitely an adult show. It’s a variety show. There will be burlesque,  people singing,  drag queens and drag queens and puppetry,” Moreno said.

Moreno  brings  his muppet  the anti-Christmas Doni, who is already a hit on TikTok to the stage to go head to head  with Didi d’Edada who loves Christmas, but things escalate.

“Doni tries to take over the company and Didi ends up in jail,” Moreno said.


 “ Theatre Outré is the only queer theatre company in Alberta, Calgary and Edmonton don’t even have one,” Moreno said.


“ Theatre Outré is a gift to the community. We have an important job of creating theatre for the community,” Moreno continued.


“The show is for everybody, but especially for the LBGTQ2+ community,” he said.

 Admission is $28.25 for adults, $22.25 seniors and students.

 The show begins at  7:30 p.m. each night in the Sterndale Bennett Theatre.
